There is honestly no way i can belive this crap, Especially if New Mexico hit the 2 million mark last year.. 2,022,991 is already the states population, an estimate count taken early this year.

I think you mean 3,099,000 in 2030, or maybe more.. were expected to be one of the fastest growing states in america after this economic mess.

And Nevada 4,200,000? Not buyin it ONE BIT, that state is losing people so fast its not even funny.

I cant find any thing on the web to confirm that people are leaving, fast or otherwise.

In fact, I did find this article projecting NVs population to be around 4,000,000 by 2028-which would put it within striking range of the 4.2M projected by the Census.

California's own Department of Finance projects the state population to be 49,240,891 by 2030. CA should surpass 40 Million by 2011.

That's what I was thinking unfortunately. San Diego County has leveled off and stopped growing. Actually, I would like to give DFW and Houston 5 million Californians each. Then they could see how they cope and brag forever, "Everything's bigger in Tejas".

Ever heard of the Central Valley and the Inland Empire? I would like to see a lot more moving out but we keep growing 400,000-600,000 a year no matter what. Texans want to grow and grow. No Californian in their right mind wants that. I would ask that the state of Texas offer as many incentives to Californians as possible to begin a mass exodus out of the state. TYI

Well homebuliders in Las Vegas wont be able to start building homes normally till late 2010 or mid 2011 becuase of the economic mess there, if you add it all up there is no way reno or anyother city will see large growth, no 4 million for nevada maybe like 3,600,000 probably as far as will go.
